Historians invent time machine

Apparently 98% of historians know something we don't and have declared President Bush's presidency a failure. The thrust of their assessment hinges on Iraq. Now, if I didn't know better, I'd say that the conflict in Iraq is not finished yet, so it can't possible be history, can it? Did they suddenly develop the ability to see into the future?

Historians, as historians, can only account for what has already happened. The story of Iraq has not even finished being written. When they talk about the merits of the future they cease acting as historians and their opinions have no more weight than anybody else's. It will be a long time before we will be able to look back on the Bush presidency and fully account for all it has affected.
